Travelling to Malta for the first time I'm late August, couple in their late 20's wondering where the best place to stay would be. Looking for affordable accommodation, not more than 700 euro's for total stay (4nights) we don't usually spend a lot of time in our accommodation when travelling but do like it to be clean and have private facilities.
We have just completed our open water dive certificate and picked Malta for this reason, so we definitely want to check out some local spots, maybe do 2 or 3 dives over the 4 days. Been tossing up between St Julian's, Sliema and Mellieha. Would it be best for us to hire a car to ensure we still see the highlights of Malta or would the bus be ok? Is a day trip to Gozo for a dive recommended?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
